Hayden and Kid’s Creek ponds to be stocked mid-March

As the weather gets warmer and spring approaches, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game will stock 950 rainbow trout in the 10-12 inch range the week of March 16-20 at the following locations:

Hayden Creek Pond – 650 trout. This is a family friendly fishing area along Hayden Creek southeast of Salmon. Anglers will find ample bank fishing opportunities and a dock for anglers with limited mobility.

Kids Creek Pond – 300 trout. Located near downtown Salmon, this small fishing pond offers good trout fishing and is regularly stocked spring through fall.

The number of trout actually released may be altered by weather, water conditions, equipment problems or schedule changes. If delays occur, trout will be released when conditions become favorable.

Anglers can find more detailed information on each of these waters, including maps, facilities, species present, stocking records, and fishing rules by visiting the Idaho Fishing Planner
